Sword Art Online: Sacred Arts magic spells
Level 1 Sacred Arts spells are made available to Kirito and co. fairly early in Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris. You’ll use different elemental magic to bolster your forces, making some spells indispensable during fights, especially those against Divine Beasts.
For instance, Wind Lv. 2 – Magic Mirror (seen below) and Steel Lv. 3 – Force Barrier provide amazing defensive boosts. Wind Lv. 3 – Accelerator, meanwhile, increases your speed. Of course, Light-type spells offer you a means of healing during battles.
Sacred Arts are also beneficial when you’re exploring. Spells like Wind Lv. 1 – Tailwind and Steel Lv. 1 – Create Metal let you cross gaps or reach new areas. These are important when you’re trying to collect treasure chests.
Below, you’ll see a couple of images showing all the Sacred Arts spells in Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris.
These can be found in your status menu if you click on the “Sacred Arts Details” panel.
